You may remember my previous two posts of what is now known (mainly just to me) as the keeping it real series
So, here is the latest offering:
Some July’s you find yourself run over, physically broken in bones you didn’t even know the name of .
Some July’s you find yourself lost, confused, unable to break the cycle of toxic relationships, self esteem at rock bottom and ready to give up…..but then…
Some July’s you find yourself on an impromptu trip to Brighton with someone lovely, sitting in a bath at 1am eating crisps to the sound of nocturnal seagulls knowing you won’t sleep all night because you don’t want to miss a minute of the excellent adventure you are having…..some July’s you find yourself sat across from an unexpected friend drinking lovely wine and laughing about your ridiculous dating experiences past, present and future…and you don’t even mind that it is raining and you’re sat outside in a crowded London bar with a million other people….some July’s you realise that despite being completely skint and still unable to return to the day job, it’s quite ok because you are getting to teach yoga and although it will never make you rich, it makes you unfailingly happy every day….some July’s you spend time with your big sister and watch as all of your children play and realise that despite her breaking your fingers when you were 11 years old, you now have forgiven her and feel more connected than ever….and some July’s you have a friend who not only makes you laugh until you nearly cry and wants to push you on to even better things but also reminds you to update your blog…
The ups and downs have been huge over the past couple of years but if I’ve been learning anything whilst documenting all this in the blog…it is that fighting against the challenging stuff makes it tougher and lying back and just rolling with it is my current preferred choice.
Just keeping it real…yet again….
